Sedona Arizona Things to do (Part 1)

Hey you guys! Thanks for joining me on another journey. We are exploring the things to do in Sedona, Arizona this week. We decided to take our rental, a Dodge Journey, on one of the rugged roads to have our own version of a Pink Jeep Tour. While this excursion company provides visitors with an exciting experience, we are traveling on the cheap. We had a blast navigating the off-road terrain in Sedona. And though the Dodge Journey felt more like a mini-van, it handled pretty well. Next time, I will rent a Jeep Wrangler instead though. An important pro tip for you ladies out there: make sure you use the restroom before setting off on a very bumpy drive with your adventurous male friend. And try to ration your water intake, but be mindful to avoid dehydrating. All those boulders can certainly exacerbate your ever-slowly filling bladder! Guys have it so easy when it comes to something like needing to pee when out adventuring. If you do decide to a similar off-roading experience to ours, make sure you are very careful with your rented vehicle; I have a whole lot of practice in driving several kinds of vehicles in such conditions. We thoroughly enjoyed our views of Chimney Rock, Thunder Mountain, Sugarloaf Mountain and Coffeepot Rock. Another travel tip I suggest is, when doing road trips, make sure to purchase the fixings for sandwiches you can make on the hood of your car–which I call “hoodwiches”. It’ll save you a good amount of money eating lunches and/or dinners that way instead of eating every meal at a restaurant. We set off on the hiking trail for Devil’s Bridge. Once it merged with the off-roading trail, we met up with a whole lot of others headed in the same direction as us. Even though it was only mid-April, it was still very warm, so don’t forget to bring more water than you think you’ll need. Devil’s Bridge is a natural sandstone arch just outside of Sedona, Arizona. It is about a 1.8 mile hike there and another 1.8 miles back. It’s a moderate-level hike, but people of all ages were on the path. It was so cool to be able to walk onto the arch! After our time at the arch, we took the trail to below. What a perspective to see where we’d just been standing! Have you heard of the vortex energy that Sedona, Arizona claims to have? For some, this energy is attractive, while others are not quite sure what to make out of it. Go check it out for yourself and let me know what you think of this mystical phenomenon. Another way we made this trip more affordable was going out to the BLM land to tent camp for free. We definitely felt more in tune with the Native American history/culture being out nature like that. And the night sky was awesome!
